(VIDEO) Obama Leaves "By their Creator" Out of Declaration of Independence

On September 15th, President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, in which he incorporated The Declaration of Independence into his speech.

The Declaration of Independence states:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

However, Obama stated:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Notice an important word missing in Obama's statement? The phrase "by their Creator" maybe?

Watch for yourself. (He starts the Declaration of Independence reference at 0:53.)

Could he have misread his teleprompter? Possibly, but his scowl and blinking eyes in lieu of the word "Creator" tells us otherwise. Obama, if you don't think the Creator endows us with our unalienable Rights, who does? The government?

Comments

Does the think if he omits "endowed by their Creator" that he can convince himself and others that these rights he's talking about are endowed by their government? Because if you don't believe these rights are endowed to you by your Creator, the government's all you've got left. And what the goverment giveth, the government can take away.

@ Anonymous  - Excellent point!

Although offensive in the extreme, THIS is not an impeachable offense. I could give a list of them Obama has committed. I'm an FDR Democrat, and I think this guy is an abominable failure who is destroying our nation. The situation in too perilous to play politics. Get this clown out of office (peacefully and constitutionally) and we can talk policy later. No I didn't vote for him. I warned people not to. I put "obama" in google news search to see what his recent idiocy was and found this. Didn't look at the video clip. He makes me sick. 22nd Congressional District of Texas, I'd vote for "Fill the Pothole in Obama's Head!" Kesha Rogers.

... the rights are unalienable.
"What" is the creator is arguing about beliefs and religion.  It doesn't change the fact that men ARE endowed with these rights.  (Life - liberty & pursuit of happiness)

The point is this John. The Founding Fathers knew that the wording was very important in relaying their message. Creator means a lot of different things to different people. God, Allah, The Great Spirit and even the Big Bang, and lots more than I can even think of. Let me ask you this. If left this part below out of the Declaration of Independence, Would it matter to you.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
